The transformation of church ministries to live streaming their video sermons online can be extremely beneficial. Unlike ten years ago, individuals are extremely busy, but if ministries is still able to get parishioners to experience sermons on the road, it’s a win for everyone. Whether they are on vacation or off doing things with family, their ministry is right alongside on their smartphones. The rat race of life should not be a factor. Just pull out your smart device and you are there. This is the reason live streaming over the internet has become so popular. People don’t have to miss out on a church service even if they are in another county. The majority of these ministries accept offering on their websites so ministries won’t miss out it members are not at the physical location. They could give virtually. For these reasons, live streaming is booming, which has brought about the growth of mobile video as a whole. Lots of people are more frequently watching content on their smartphones and tablets, which has forced companies to alter their approaches. Live streaming has developed into a focal point for big companies. They are projecting streaming videos to be a top advertising device in the future. Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, and YouTube invest significant sums of money into building and enhancing their live stream platforms, as stated by the Financial Times.
One of the HUGE thing that is helping video content to become extremely popular is the rise in mobile video viewing. Google along with other search engines are looking at how contents fits on mobile devices. Church targeted audience is now focus on young and on the go people. As video becomes mobile-first, you will continue to notice large online companies and churches switch more to video content. Our organization is broadcasting to Facebook, Ustream and YouTube. I expect this to become more and more common for places of worships. Reaching teenagers is a huge segment of the population that stream videos. Therefore the preacher must be articulate with a personality that they can feel during Live streaming.
Live streaming can be a low-cost, easy-to-implement solution which not just expands reach for religious organizations but strengthens existing communities. In the modern world, churches are like any other businesses competing with other churches for hearts, minds – and ever-diminishing concentration.
Figures reveal that live video is more fascinating to audiences: 80% would prefer to watch live video than read written text, for example, while Facebook estimates that nearly 80% of online audiences are busy watching videos. Broadcasting via social media also facilitates sharing, providing churches with an invaluable tool for spreading the word; social video generates 1200% more shares than text and pictures combined.
The Live chat options is vital for religious leaders which allow someone belonging to the broadcasting church to interact with followers in real time. It’s also easy to implement online donations during or after broadcasts, helping religious bodies fund their growth while enabling followers to play a role by contributing. Simultaneous multilingual streams enable worshipers to watch services in their own language, expanding reach exponentially. While on demand video catch-up means messages endure long afterwards the broadcast is over.
All of these functions are easy to implement and enable churches not only to enhance their live streams but also add meaning and value for their followers. Some organizations are expanding their teaching in other ways.
There are those large churches that have been using this technology for a very long time now and are expanding their offering. You can find new smaller organizations that just start their live online church streaming ministries videos broadcast. The low cost now is helping small budget churches to go toe to toe with larger better known churches. This has help organizations everywhere to use their online ministry as an outreach tool. Most major platforms are presently offering some form of video archived or live streaming. As stated by one of the major internet backbone carrier. Their projection is by 2020 video streaming will be 80 percent of the internet traffic.
Any ministry that would intend to outreach on the internet and in their community shouldn’t ignore the power of some kind of live or archived video storage online. You can use it to do many things. One can use these videos for retirement communities that have a worship hall. This give them the abilities to host church service on location which will eradicate the need to transport their members to a church. The same can be done for Ronald McDonald House, senior centers, foreign missions and a whole host of community outreach programs.
Top quality online church broadcast is an effective way to draw new people to your ministry. Churches which are growing and thriving with live streams must have a great presentation. It is important to make effort to put out the best presentation to the audience. Because if it is not of a elevated level you will turn potential newbies off. So it is tremendously imperative that you make sure the presentation is at a very high level because it has to be able to hold the attention of the people who newly discover your ministry online. Pointing your live feed to a banner or having folks who cannot sing or speak may have worked or hold people in the physical church, but not people online. They’ll easily move on to another church website that will give them the best presentation. It doesn’t necessarily matter your denomination. Catholic, Baptist, Christian – no denomination, Pentecostal, Churches of Christ, Nondenominational, Evangelical, Church of God, Holiness/Holy, Full Gospel, Independent Christian Church, Born Again or any other name that name Jesus Christ as their personal savior, the broadcast has to be perfect or else new people will not stay after they tune in.
When your live broadcast is attractive, then there are several benefits you will enjoyed. First people will give to your ministry because people like when churches or corporations are well organized. You’ll draw new members because people love to be a part of something good. Your current members will refer families and friends to the ministry because it makes them proud to be part of something good. They will post links of your to social sites and send it in emails to friends, family, co-workers and everyone they know. If your members are excited, their excitement will rub off on their friends. This will even go further than just online. Once new members start visiting your physical location your members will spread their enthusiasm to them which will inspire them to come and join that ministry.
If everything is aligned as per the above recommendations, I believe your ministry proliferates locally and nationally. Streaming Churches Online would love to broadcast your ministry on our website and give you the notoriety your ministry deserved to spread the news of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Not too long ago churches that were on the internet and streaming live were medium to mega churches. First you would need lots of money to buy the encoders as well as the equipment that you would need to be able to go live. What a difference a few years have made! Today anyone and everybody is live streaming their churches. Thanks God for small encoders that area lot cheaper and smaller.
There’s a new challenge in the near future for churches that are streaming live on the internet. A number of these churches have invested heavily into websites and equipment, but haven’t realized there is certainly more to getting new clients online than just streaming. If your website wasn’t generating new visitors or your weren’t getting a plethora of new prospective clients to your site in advance of live streaming or archiving your church services. They won’t find your product after you start broadcasting over the web. Word of mouth is good, but no one should limit their church growth in this digital age just to the folks they know. With the archived and On-demand video streaming becoming increasingly popular churches should find ways to tap into this up and coming booming trend.
The real key to being successful for all websites is to be able to be discovered by customers or potential members using keywords searching for what you are offering on the 1st few pages of search engines, Google, Bing, Yahoo and all other serps. Let’s think this through. If you ‘reselling cameras and you have a million other websites selling cameras, how will your website get to the front of the line so prospective clients can find your page with the cameras you are selling?
This is where Streaming Churches Online should help your preaching ministry. We don’t just help churches stream online. We get new customers every day on our website looking for church related news and videos. They found our site not just thru word of mouth, which is a great thing. They are finding us thru search phases according to what they are looking for on churches which are live streaming their services online. Visitors who are looking for words with online church or if they type in live church online they will be able to find our site. These are generally steps that church administrators should research to find out where they are in search. Unfortunately most church administrators only believe all they need to do is start streaming and the potential new members will come. This is the furthest thing from the truth. Most of the times when we mentioned these things to churches they look up their church by typing their church name in major search engines and their church come to the top of that search engine they believe things are going well. For the most part, some of the people we talked to seems satisfied that their ministry name is on a search engine. Unfortunately people find it hard to make the connection as to when they are looking for a Plummer online. If you knew the name of the Plummer you would just call that company. What one would normally type in is “best Plummer in Philadelphia” for example. This is no difference to a search engine when you are looking for a church. Just typing a church name and believe someone else is going to find your ministry is believing your ministry has great name recognition’s and everyone on the web is aware of your church. One question we always ask potential customers; how many people on the web know your church name? Unless you are spending thousands of dollars to raise your church name recognition, your church name recognition is low. Only when you have very popular ministries where there is some other platform that is driving people to inquire about your website then you will need better marketing for church growth.
